Introducing the Porch on Wheels

Through the help of the Building and Grounds Committee The Porch on Wheels will soon be occupying the smoking hut space at the Village. The Porch on Wheels came about because of the need at Warren Wilson for places that foster community—in particular, the community that likes being outside, but also likes breaks from the rain. The southern culture we live in has been upheld through great porches. The surrounding community sports porches of all shapes and sizes; screened in, falling down or providing the finest comfy chairs and coolers. Trey Jones, Bryce Dow-Williamson, Eric Zimdars, Matteo Bessone and Bennie Mattesich built The Porch with all recycled materials and the help of many crews in the Warren Wilson Community. The hope was for the porch to accent events and programs on campus like it did on Plow Day. We wanted to bring some of the surrounding culture into our bubble and just sit with it for a spell. We need to make sure that it does not become a place that lends itself to littering the landscape with cigarette butts and beer cans.

To keep it going we need to show that it is a benefit to the community. We would like to extend the invitation to the community to enjoy, respect and utilize the Porch on Wheels. To be in this new home the wheels will need to be taken off and stored. There was worry about people moving it without permission. The porch can have a semi-permanent usable home and then come back down onto main campus if, and when, there is the need. If not, it will be dismantled at the end of the year.

  3. Instead, having a sparkly smile will encourage better dental
    hygiene because the dental jewelry draws the attention
    towards the person. Some jewelry artists feel that when we
    are selling it directly to buyers face to face, we should drop that bargain- basement atmosphere.
    When shopping for gemstone rings, choose a stone that is appropriately sized for the finger
    you plan to wear it on.
